Status Saturday: Sin City Status UpdatesPieter posted in "Applications, Status updates". 3 years, 11 months ago
A few weeks ago the Blu-Ray edition of Frank Miller’s Sin City was released. I can’t wait to see this movie again in High-Definition… but then I don’t own a Blu-Ray player so it’s going to be a pricey event. Anyway, the release inspired me to take some quotes from the movie and turn them into the following 23 Frank Miller-style status updates for Facebook, or Twitter, or whatever social network / lifestreaming service you’re using:
…is heading down for a midnight snack… and you can guess what kind.
…is turning the right corner in Sin City.
…is walking down the right back alley in Sin City.
…will cut you in ways that’ll make you useless to a woman/man….is one mistake away from seeing what Miho can do, and she’s’ been aching for some practice.
…is making a big mistake, man. A *big* mistake.
…loves hitmen: no matter what you do to them, you don’t feel bad.
…is shouting and laughing with the pure, hateful, bloodthirsty joy of the slaughter.
…is ready for war.
…thinks modern cars all look like electric shavers.
…is outnumbered. Outgunned. But the alley is crooked, dark, and very narrow. They can’t surround me. Sometimes you can beat the odds with a careful choice of where to fight.
…did exactly what he/she had to do, every step of the way.
…is gonna give him the hard goodbye.
…is in a lousy room in a lousy part of a lousy town.
…knows it’s pretty damn weird to eat people.
…is just a horny ex-con watching an exotic dancer.
…is having so much fun he/she forgot to take his/her medicine.
…knew there was a reason he/she got out of bed this morning.
…didn’t come here for the party, but came for you.
…is having a cold shower. It helps.
…can only express puzzlement, that borders on alarm.
…is wearing a damn fine coat.
The Sin City fan page has nearly 90,000 fans (at the time of writing) and frequently publishes clips from the Blu-Ray edition to your news feed. To promote the release, there’s also Sin City Facebook application (1,560 monthly active users) which currently lets you watch clips and play two games: a Simon Says-clone called “Get ‘em Good” and a click-and-shooter called “Old Town Ambush“. They’re not really worth your precious procrastination time, so I hope the third game -which has yet to be activated- will equal the “cool” of the movie.
